Also, yesterday ended up being brilliant for running! I know I'd said that the day was pretty miserable and yuck-tastic when I blogged earlier, but eventually the rain cleared up, the sun came out, and the day stayed lovely and cool. So by the time the Husband got home, allowing me to run on my own, conditions were perfect. (Just saying that phrase makes me think of Flight of the Conchords...)
The real challenge to all of this is going to be making the time for long runs as a family on Saturdays. Today and Thursday - as we've already sort of established - are family runs where E and I take the jogging stroller to meet the Husband coming from work. So that gives me a good excuse to get 2 of my 6 runs out of the way already. Seriously, the running itself should be the hard work: just make everything else about it as easy as possible. Bring a water bottle, get an iPod armband, find a friend, convince yourself you'll enjoy it, enter a race so you have to train, bribe yourself with treats: just go run! At least, that's my philosophy.
In the meantime, I have a sleeping baby, which means I have time to do the laundry, tidy the bedroom, and do some reading. That is, provided I stop just watching him sleep. He's so cute when he sleeps! Okay, off to enjoy my grown-up time...
